What Is Eczema?
Eczema is a term for a chronic skin condition that is caused by a disruption in the normal function of the skin and certain pathways within the immune system. This inflammatory condition can lead to redness and itchy spots on the skin that can occur anywhere on your body, including the hands, face, neck, or other places. There are a variety of forms of eczema including atopical dermatitis, nummular dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic dermatitis, and allergic contact dermatitis. This condition normally starts in youth, but can impact individuals at any age. At Brentwood Skin Clinic in Nashville, TN, Dr. Austin Mitchell can help diagnose eczema and other rashes so a precise treatment plan can be created and completed.

How Are Eczema and Other Rashes Treated?
Eczema and many other rashes can be treated with a selection of prescribed or over-the-counter drugs and ointments. Hydrocortisone ointments and creams can be used in addition to antihistamines, like Benadryl, to help relieve symptoms. Prescription drugs, such as steroid creams or immunomodulators, can assist if you have moderate to severe eczema. An oral steroid or corticosteroid might also be prescribed. In severe instances, Dr. Mitchell may utilize ultraviolet light therapy or laser therapy to reduce symptoms. When other treatments have failed, immunosuppressants could be prescribed since these drugs suppress the immune system.
It's important that you do not scratch your eczema, as this can lead to even more discomfort. Some ways to alleviate this discomfort and signs and symptoms of eczema at home include:
- Applying a cool compress
- Wearing clothing with natural fabrics
- Using moisturizing creams and soaps for sensative skin
- Avoiding allergens and chemical irritants

Very awesome and friendly staff. Everyone greeted me, made sure I felt comfortable, and took care of everything I asked them to do. Will definitely be back if I need more things looked at.
Had a concern regarding a small bumpy scar on my leg. Visited based on the Google reviews. Reputation is well earned! Dr. Mitchell was knowledgeable and personable. Took care of my issue that day and his office followed up with me when the standard biopsy came back with good news! Highly recommend!
